The reason for the genocide was that the Ottomans believed that the Armenians were a problem in Turkey ands they needed to get rid of them in order to save Turkey and also because they were non-Muslim and believed them to be second-level and this is what led to the mass murder for those millions of Armenians. One of the many reasons the Ottomans wanted to get rid of the Armenians was because they believed that the only way to save the Turkish state was to minimize the Christian population, which were the Armenians. Also, because they felt that these non-Muslim Armenians created the decline of the Ottoman Empire and the internal demographic and economic pressures. Also, they believed that those who were non-Muslim were second-level meaning below them and felt as if they weren’t any good because their beliefs were different from theirs.

This can be exemplified with the genocide of the Poles in the Katyn Woods, and the Armenian Genocide. One happened in the midst of World War II, and has been largely ignored by the…
